Writing has always been part of my life and writing in its many forms, from letters, emails and stories… etc is one of my favourite things. I am comfortable in my skin when I recognise myself as a storyteller. I started blogging because I needed somewhere to refine my ideas and to put my thoughts. I would like to expand my world, gather my friends and share what is my life with you in these pages.
Welcome to my world of Blogs.
I grew up in the Aussie bush which ran alongside the Georges River in Sydney and although I come from a large family at times it was a lonely place to be. A thought which reminds me:
Life was really never meant to be easy, it was meant to be a journey and an adventure.
Writing became my escape, my private life and my first love. My second love was my hubby and he is my best friend, my confidant and my soul mate. Even though there are occasions when I could gladly strangle him, he does make me laugh at myself at times and when I am angry with my soulmate, I still have my friend.
Come with me on my journey and lets see what we can discover together.
The Man and I live on the wallaby now, we travel Australia in our van with our pups and explore all those places we always dreamed of visiting. We love the freedom of Freecamps, we enjoy the quiet of the Outback and the adventure of visiting towns and communities. If you see us along the way, say Hi.
The best part about travelling is the people you meet and befriend along the way. You will know us by the blue kayak on the roof and the two adventurous pups, the fur kids. I would like to apologize in advance for the enthusiastic greeting the pups will give you, please forgive them the pleasure they take in meeting someone new.
Catch you around the ridges.
